Chesa Boudin discusses the revolution in Venezuela
We had a great conversation with Chesa Boudin, co-author of "The Venezuelan Revolution: 100 Questions--100 Answers."
Chesa Boudin interned on President Chávez's foreign policy team in 2005 while preparing his master's degree in Latin American public policy at Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship.
We asked him a few questions and below are some of his very informative answers. Issues discussed include the interplay between the grassroots and Chavez within the revolutionary process in Venezuela, the Bolivarian revolution's relation to capital, economic questions regarding industrial policies and nationalization, and the scope of political change.

Great interview (or, mostly monologue)
I am most pleasantly surprised by the breadth of knowledge and the fair-, and democratically- minded approach of Mr. Boudine to the issues facing Venezuela. Kudos to him and the interviewer!
